Non-Profits & Organizations
The Asbury Foundation is a private, grant making organization serving Hattiesburg and the surrounding region. With the reallocation of its assets from the sale of Methodist Hospital of Hattiesburg, Inc. and Wesley Health Systems in September 1997, the Asbury Foundation's many years of service and community involvement continues.
Guided by its tradition of serving others, the Asbury Foundation is committed to the development of a healthy community through our grant making endeavors. The Asbury Foundation invests in community organizations that provide or strengthen education and health or offer other initiatives to improve the quality of life in the area. ''We are here, faithful and prepared to serve.''
Grants are made to not-for-profit, charitable, scientific, or educational organizations in one or more of the eight Mississippi counties of Forrest, Lamar, Jones, Marion, Covington, Perry, Pearl River and Jefferson Davis. Beneficiaries of grants should reside in one or more of the eight counties. It is preferred that the organization receiving a grant also be located in the same eight county region. Grants are awarded for a minimum of $25,000 for periods of one year or more.
